In December 2021, a series of tornadoes in Kentucky devastated western parts of the state. Now the dogs rescued from the natural disaster have made their way to Boston.
Dozens of dogs were rescued from areas hardest hit by the tornado, according to a statement from the Animal Rescue League of Boston and the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals. These animals were then received by the ARL as part of the ASPCA relocation program.
“The ASPCA has done a wonderful job in its disaster relief efforts in Kentucky, and the ARL is pleased to be able to help the effort by welcoming these wonderful dogs and finding them loving homes here in the Massachusetts,” said ARL President and CEO Dr. Edward Schettino.
Dogs by the names of Bullwinkle, Goldie, Rosemary and many more are now at the ARL. The dogs have been checked, vaccinated, spayed, spayed and microchipped and are now ready for adoption.
The mile-wide tornado spinning at 190 miles per hour caused extensive damage and killed at least 77 people in its path.
